of defense is correct we are doing quarterbacking. if they would tell us more we would quit our monday morning quarterbacking. he didn't have the awareness to commit forces, look he had the situational awareness that the embassy was being attacked -- the consulate was being attacked in benghazi and should have had aircraft over there as soon as possible. john mccain is correct, they didn't have an alert status. we still could have gotten airplanes were armed or not over the consulate annex within probably a couple hours. we should have done that. we didn't even try. we didn't do anything. that is the very disturbing thing. we should have had alert aircraft. first we should have had a global hawk over benghazi and tripoli on 9/11 the anniversary. they announced the day before that we should take radical islamists should take advantage and defeat the americans because they killed binlibbi in afghanistan. we should have had intelligence surveillance and assets right over libya. >> jamie: you are saying we should have begun the operation to protect everyone even before 9/11. we had enough
the drought, there was a nearly equal jump in defense spending that some say anticipates cutbacks next year but for now helps q3 gdp. "if we go into sequestering, you're going to see defense budget items slashed, and so they're doing some pre-emptive buying to get it now." but on the negative side, business investment has stalled. "i think it's having a huge impact and it's holding up hiring, so the uncertainty over who wins, the tax policy, all that, is going to delay them." mesirow financial's chief economist diane swonk says "the decline in business investment represents a particular blow as it not only reflects weakness abroad, but also the uncertainty about our own policies. the fiscal cliff needs to be dealt with by whovever wins in a credible and bipartisan way, and asap." with just about one week to go before the election, the candidates will be in wisconsin this week. today, republican mitt romney's campaign has an event in milwaukee. tomorrow, president obama will be in green bay. the volitility index, better known as the vix, may be signaling better days ahead. according to repor
questions are. was he directed by the president or the secretary of defense? he said, no. >> shannon: as you know, there are very few people above a four-star general, that narrows the field of who has the answers. congressman, thank you for your time. >> thanks, shannon. >> shannon: hurricane sandy is expected to make landfall on tuesday morning, around the delaware coast with storm urges up to 8 feet. we are feeling it up and down the east coast. states of emergency have been declared from north carolina through new england. and this rare hybrid storm that follows sandy may wreak even more havoc. we have more live team coverage. we go to the fox extreme weather center and rick. >> reporter: it's all one storm, becoming one big storm. a storm like we have never seen. if you live anywhere from illinois to mississippi, to the east, you are going to feel the effects of this storm. very big already. you can see the cloud cover from canada to south carolina, rain has been consistent in the outer banks and we are seeing rain in parts of new jersey and much of the state of pennsylvania. this is th
:00 p.m., the president, vice-president and defense secretary, leon panetta, meet in the oval office. >> that's an hour after the attacks began. at that time they would have had a drone and a video feed from a drone being fed back to washington. >> fox news national security correspondent, jennifer griffith. >> the problem is don't forget that video from a drone is taken from an incredible distance. ground.t have clarity as to who you see figures moving. it's hard to tell friendly from faux. >> 6:00 7'm. another e-mail states that a terror group with ties to al qaeda claimed responsibility on facebook and twitter. administration officials later say a posting on social media and is not in and of itself evidence. 11:5 p.m. another chilling e-mail. subject line, benghazi shelter location also under attack. the next morning, september 12, president obama addresses the nation from the rose garden and what he says or doesn't say will become a hotly debated issue over the next days and weeks. >> since our founding, the united states has been a nation that respects all faiths. we reject all
romney's allies went on television in california, they wouldn't be inclined to play defense there. they feel a little bit of vulnerability in those states. and again, if you take the non-battlegrounds, expand the map a little bit to include pennsylvania, minnesota, and maybe michigan, it's a much different calculation. >> karl rove is going to be putting up ads in pennsylvania now, the president is putting up ads in pennsylvania now. >> yep. >> suddenly the keystone state is the final week out up for grabs. why? not up for grabs yet, the polls show it close. but both sides realize that it's not safe anymore. >> what's the big deal to last week, we have enough money to go there. it's not the money on television, that's not nothing, it's the candidate's time, joe biden going to scranton. i suspect if things keep on the current trajectory, the president might have to go to pennsylvania, bill clinton might have to be there repeatedly. every day they're spending in pennsylvania is a day they're not spending in ohio. the republicans believe, not just rove's group, but some of the others
trillion more in defense spending. he says he will close unspecified -- end unspecified tax deductions, which he refuses to spell out because they're politically poisonous. this is the basic recipe of trickle-down economics in the reagan and bush years, both of which resulted in exploding defici deficits. what am i missing here? >> i have the benefit of meeting one on one with mitt romney and paul ryan and probing what are their thoughts with regard to taxes and defense. you're talking about the things being thrown out, but when you look at a 20% rate reduction and when you look at what rate are now, that will take the top rate to 28%. we lose 1.1 trillion a year in revenue through the deductions and exemptions and credits and exclusions. over ten years that's probably 15 trillion, when you count inflation. so all you have to do is is eliminate about a third to 40% of the deductions, exemptions and credits and exclusions, and you can be revenue neutral. with regard to defense, we're spending 4.6% of gdp on defense. he's committed to spend 4. 4 is less hanthan 4.6. my personal view is w
the boundaries of class and propriety. coming up next, former defense secretary donald rumsfeld joins us, former reagan adviser arthur laugher. stay with us. we are tracking hurricanes sandy. the very latest for you. this looks like the real deal. ♪ ♪ lou: president's -- residents along the east coast are bracing for hurricane sandy, not due to make landfall in text and -- until next week, but it looks like it could be a spectacular event come early tuesday. hurricane sandy has been battering the bahamas, tearing to the caribbean, killing at least 40 people, that is how powerful the storm has bee. still more than 400 miles southeast of south carolina. top winds are barely hurricane strength right now. however, if it should hit the atlantic coast, the neurologists are saying it could blend with a winter storm creating what would be a very dangerous monstrous storm. fox news meteorologist joining us to explain what that might entail. >> the typical nor'easter, some spots macy 10 inches of rain, rain, not snow, rain, but heavy rain falling. wind will be with us likely around 36, maybe even 48 h
occasions they were told to stand down and to not go in there. defense secretary leon panetta said we simply didn't have enough information for individuals to go into that zen. what do you make of all of this? >> we're in the stage now of conflicting explanation by the administration. we are long past the point of confusion about what happened on the terrorist side. we know it was a planned terrorist attack. this mohammed video explanation which was always foolish is out of the picture. but now the administration is saying different things. this fox report about the cia denying additional help telling its agents there to stand down was contradicted yesterday by the cia itself. so general petraeus is saying it wasn't the cia who denied the request for additional assistance, implying it was somebody at a higher level of authority. and the point you make about defense secretary panetta is also important. jason chaffets, congressman from utah said last night on the hannity show that he spoke with general carter ham, the commanding general of the after infantry -- africon. he said i was never ask
, the wags going off a third is the defense spending in the course of this third quarter. because of the fiscal year, defense spending goes up because it's either use it or lose it attitude in the federal government. throughout the federal government, not just the defense department. and so they're spending more. >> bill: the federal government is driving this increase in. >> about a third of it is the result of. >> bill: that's a lot of it. yes, it is. but, you know, if you smooth this thing out over the course of the year, smoothing anything out in the federal government is he see easier than, you know, it sounds easier than it is. it's really not that. >> bill: is that a good report? 2% growth? >> it's as good as any other. bill, the fact is the concern about g.d.p. growth, all of that the market as you know took it today basically dismissed it. because there is a lack of credibility around all of these. >> bill: still in a weak economy then. >> absolutely. >> bill: as you mentioned the stock market this week alone down 237 points. >> right, right. >> bill: why is it falling? >
free. free is good. my money. my choice. my meineke. >>> just in, the defense department announcing it's second extra fuel to the new york area. the defense logistics area buying up to ten million gallons of diesel fuel for distribution in storm-affected areas. as we have been telling you, the panic for gas has created miles-long lines at gas stations, and many, many hours. only 40% to 50% of the gas stations in new york city and new jersey are even operating tonight. many of them are just out of service because they have no power. something that perhaps could have been anticipated before the storm. >>> now to tonight's outer circle, where we reach out to sources around the world. we go to mali where the u.n. refugee agency says there are as many as 85,000 more refugees in the country than previously thought. the agency says hundreds of thousands of people are fleeing a deteriorating situation in the north of the country where islamist militants have taken root. david mckenzie is following the story and i asked him how bad he's hearing it's getting. >> reporter: it could be the next fr
has a little longer timeframe but payroll cuts are exacerbating the problem. and defense spending has to be on the table, too. >> you gleamed all the critical -- >> if you're going to have an agreement, republicans are going to have to give on tax revenues and democrats are going to have to give on entitlement spending. it's as simple as that. >> it is simple. >> it is real simple. i have repeatedly in the past been in favor of bull simpson. it would have been nice to do it. if we kept kicking the can down the road, the debt has grown bigger and bigger. the longer this goes on, the worse the problem gets. and the more the debt goes up. >> you see congress taking a trench on either side -- a lot of people disliked grover's pledge because they feel like it makes everyone feel more entrenched. you talk about independent spirit. a lot of times independent spirits don't necessarily come to the table in conversation. >> you need people who will serve in elected positions and understand their responsibility to govern. they need to make decisions. we have serious fiscal problems, serious econ
of government jobs, a lot of military jobs. a series of mandatory cuts in defense spend iing at the end o the year. i know you have criticized the president on this but paul ryan vo voted for that. so how do you make the case? >> republicans and democrats supported the sequestration announcement 15 months ago in august of 2011, but it was supposed to be a hammer not a policy. in other words, the super committee was supposed to get a budget deal done but now, lester, we're two months away from crippling cuts to the military. that ought to call them devastating. in virginia it's 200,000 jobs. the president has been a bystander. bob woodward said this wasn't the president's idea to have $600 billion in defense cuts on 0 top of the $400 billion this year. >> we know it's a huge issue. >> it is. the fact is you have to have a solution. here we are a couple days before an election, two months before they go into effect, and the president just hasn't led on this. that's my criticism at this point. we're home to 150,000 men and women in uniform. 800,000 veterans. and they just like to sit and wat
if that is something that catches fire and he feels he's on the defensive about, i go back, fema is popular in the state of florida. my family went through some problems in '04 and '05 during the storms when florida was getting bombarded and both jeb bush and fee ma are popular in the state of florida because of it. >> and you talk about disaster assistance on hold, bring up hurricane katrina and memories of the bush administration which does not play well for republicans. thank you as always to chuck todd, live from the white house. >> okay. >> we will be asking you many more questions in the coming days and have the president's remarks live later this hour. ari, talk about president obama and sort of his role in all of this, whichs is to say he has to act as the commander in chief, a tricky ballet for romney and the white house as well. appear to be above it all, yuts understanding he has a couple days left and has to make his convincing argument before november 6th. >> one job in america that's 24/7 and that's the president. >> oh, no. you have not seen the way th this -- the way she goe
to the red cross, we should say that that packers' defense you're talking about, charles woodson, gave a big donation, $100,000, that's great. a great example to set for the rest of the country. redcross.org if you're thinking. brianna, quickly, i want to ask about the recent polling that's come out in wisconsin, and while i ask you about the polling, i also want to remind our viewers that wisconsin is the home state of congressman ryan, and that would be governor romney's running mate. so maybe defying conventional wisdom, wisconsin is leaning fairly heavily in president obama's favor. >> reporter: that's right. now, paul ryan has been seen as an asset, obviously, to governor romney and he has been making a whole lot of appearances. i'll tell you, the crowd behind me is getting excited, ashleigh, because air force one is taxing over towards us where president obama is going to be coming out shortly and making his remarks. yes, paul ryan has been an asset to governor romney. it's why some are saying the race here has been pretty tight, although there is a small lead, a consistent lead, for p
or flew defense we absolutely need. i think a bigger question, why are these foreigners especially very clever, extremely well-versed foreigners willing to buy some of our debt and must see some value that maybe we're too modest and self-efacing to see ourselves. obviously, this country has tremendous value to the rest of the world. >> neil: you're right. thmodesty is what i've always liked about myself. (laughter) >> you know, adam, you know why i think they're investing here, nothing to do with al truism. and we might stink, but the world stinks more, so, cash finds a haven here, i'm not-- you know, saying harmful things about the country, but i'm just saying, financially, compared to the rest of the world. we just don't suck as much. so, there's a big amount of capital that comes here as a result. what do you think. >> absolutely correct, neil. >> neil: it is? >> i mean we should take-- >> i made that up then and there. >> i think i made it up. >> like your humility very much. neil, abouyourself. if there's, i mean, of course, we should get our spending in line, charles, of course,
republicans highlighted the political geography at play saying the obama campaign is playing defense in traditionally democratic states like minnesota. >>> still ahead, the incredible story of a new york city hospital evacuated after its generators failed and the nurses, doctors and eventmts wh carried premature babies to safety in the middle of the storm. progresso this reduced sodium soup says it may help lower cholesterol, how does it work? you just have to eat it as part of your heart healthy diet. step 1. eat the soup. all those veggies and beans, that's what may help lower your cholesterol and -- well that's easy [ male announcer ] progresso. you gotta taste this soup. >>> we told you there is no firm time table yet for when the subway system will be fully operational. mayor bloomberg said it could be four or five days. accept s seven subway tunnels are flooded. the last time they experienced significant flooding was in december of 1992 when a nor'easter hit the city. those floods resulted in extended interrupts of subway service and forced trains to remain closed for ten days
's a great concern. either the president gave an order that was disobeyed by the secretary of defense to provide support in benghazi or he didn't, and i think people want answers before this election on that, so that's what's going to determine the outcome. we got a great ground game, and i expect governor romney to win a close election in virginia, candy. >> you may need some voters to get to the polls. we wish you well. got a big storm coming before we even get to the election. we'll have our fingers crossed for virginia and maryland and surrounding states. thank you for being here. former ohio governor, ted strickland, thank you as well. >>> when we return, the latest developments on hurricane sandy.  >>> the northeast is bracing for a hit from hurricane sandy. meteorologist bonnie schneider is at the cnn weather center tracking the storm. bonnie, what's the latest? >> right now, hurricane sandy is 575 miles south of new york city and the storm is on the move. as a category one, 75 miles per hour, but it is interesting to note we have some updates to tell you about. first off, the
, that the obama campaign's playing some defense there, but he can do it if he can win some combination of wisconsin, iowa or new hampshire. >> the ohio news organization poll has it a dead heat in that state, 49%-49%. and also staying in the midwest, in minnesota, mitt romney's actually sliced president obama's large lead in that state. also an independent state, 47%-44 rs 47%-44% according to "the minnesota startribune." you also add on top of that, in iowa, you have a "des moines register" endorsement which is huge. >> that was a big endorsement. >> that is a huge endorsement of that state. they haven't endorsed a republican since richard nixon in 1972. there are few endorsements that still matter. really matter. in iowa, the des moines register endorsement matters. >> not only that, look at the artwork on the front page. >> all right. thank you, barnicle. >> it's tightening up in the midwest. >> the midwest, wisconsin, minnesota. but the wild card in this thing we've already alluded to it is this storm. >> yeah. >> how does it impact early voting? power outages that might continue f
questions were -- in fact, alex can you pull the sound bite of chris christie getting a little bit defensive, i guess, about this all? because it seemed to me that those are two people doing what they are supposed to do. one on the left, one on the right, doesn't really matter, they're both doing what they're supposed to do, but yet at a time when new jersey is suffering its biggest crisis in probably decades and most of our lifetimes, he's getting a question that has him saying this? take a listen. >> and the president of the united states and i have now had six conversations since sunday. that shows to me a level of caring and concern and interest that i think a leadership should be given to this type of situation. this was as comfortable and relaxing an interaction as i've had with the president since i've known him. and i think it's because we're both doing what we want to do, which is to get things done. there will be some folks who will criticize me for complimenting him. well, you know what? i speak the truth. that's what i always do. sometimes you guys like it. sometimes you don't. s
by the name of oshkosh defense, they make military vehicles, they announced they will be laying off 450 full time united autoworker employees. that will hit that very small region in the middle of the state very hard. president obama was in that area yesterday. governor romney is here in the milwaukee area today. kete happened in gree throughout the entire state, but you can imagine that the folks who are tied to the defense contracts will be leaning towards mney because it hits home for them. bottom line here in wisconsin, like many other states across this coury, jobs is the number one issue. >> the recovery here in nevada has beenott pl ithe country. 11.8% here in clark county. 12.3%. we're on top of the stratosphere here. this hotel and casino has poured more than $20 million into renovations in the last couple of years. they are optimistic that things are going to get better. they even added jobs, more than 100 in the last couple of months. and there are others smaller signs that things are getting better. that's the strip behind me, the big blue building to the left, that's 70% comple
appreciate -- appreciated. this is a team effort, department of defense working with all the agencies, and we can be proud to be americans because even during a tragedy like this there is good news in seeing america come together to help other americans in the time of need. neil: i agree. you see it in times like this, but you're right. thank you very much. >> thank you. neil: coming up, stocks opened for trading again today. a little bumpy. did it have to be that way? two days of not trading because of the storm. what did we lose the size just a couple of days? the lot of folks seem to think our respect. is that true? jack, you're a little boring. boring. boring.

that with this announcement that obama, president obama has asked the defense department to free up some extra fuel, you mentioned it already, upwards of 24 million gallons to get more of it out here and transported more easily so that it can get out faster to the gas stations that do have power. >> yeah. it's a hell of a struggle. susan, thank you very much indeed. >>> joining me now from columbus, ohio, is general wesley clark, an obama supporter, former nato supreme allied commander. general, welcome back. >> thank you, piers. >> all the action now is heading to ohio. almost everyone who is anyone is down there, including your good self. the polls are very, very tight, showing very marginal lead for the president in most of the ones i've seen but with the margin of difference, you could almost say it's a tie. how are you seeing it down there on the ground? >> well, there's a lot of emotion, there's just thousands of volunteers out here. there's a ground game. we feel very good about the ground game, by the way. our volunteers are charged up. we've been working this for three and a half years. we knew
. now they are going up on advertising, sending their surrogates in because they are on defense on states that they considered very safe for obama, whereas governor romney is able to expand the map into states that were considered outside of that window and that includes states like wisconsin as well. that were considered safe seats -- double digit states the president carried in 2008. >> we have to let that be the last word but thanks for coming on the program. it's good to see you. >> you bet. >> susan, let's talk about the polls. gallup daily tracking poll is suspended because of sandy. but we did see a national poll that showed obama up by one, more significantly in the battleground states but some of the numbers are tightening. the gap is closing but does obama still have enough of a lead. would he still be considered when you look at all these polls in aggregate the one to be favored? >> i think if you look at the whole set of swing states, polls that president obama seems to have the small advantage, even though mitt romney is ahead by a tick in most of the national polls
government is here to help. and that means the department of defense. and the department of defense yesterday was air lifting utility crews with their equipment here to new york, to new jersey and other places impacted by the storm. and more of those air lifts we anticipate to be coming over the coming days. there's an 800 number people can call. 1-800-621-3362. 1-800-621-3362. you can go to disast disasterassistance.gov. or indeed if you go to a disaster recovery center, all of the information you need to find out about the assistance you are entitled to can be found. and as was mentioned, people are now going door to door. one of my concerns -- i think all of our concerns is as the temperature drops with power still out in many neighborhoods, making sure that everybody is safe and if they need to get to a warm place that we're able to do that. so a lot of work ongoing. a lot more left to do. but the food, the water, all the assets coming into this area of the country, coming into new york. governor cuomo's been a great advocate. and coming into the borough of staten island. thank you. >> al
in the commercial putting jobs in china as opposed to moving jobs so they could have some kind of defense. >> bill: finally you mentioned a little bit about momentum before. there were a lot of stories last week, and romney himself was talking about we're on a role. i'm going to win, and when i'm president, not if i'm president. some of which have been soft pedalled by members of the media. what is the feeling in the romney campaign about momentum? it is just bluff? or do they think they are ahead? >> most of it is just bluff. i don't think that they have some huge crushed momentum and both candidates do that all the time. so rhetorically they say it but they know probably they are a little bit down in ohio, or obviously they think the gap is closeable. but i think that they look at the electoral map, and they see if they don't win ohio they need to run the table pretty much everywhere else and in wisconsin -- and we're going to wisconsin tonight actually, and we'll stay mill waky. all right. james so good to have you here this morning. >> thanks, bill. >> bill: appreciate it
. this is a wide, barreling, lumbering, defensive lineman where that was a sprinter with a smaller body and a faster wind speed. this big storm is now making wind speeds of 81 miles per hour out near martha's vineyard, 76 in long island sound. and making landfall literally hundreds of miles from there. a typical storm would only have the core of the energy, a core of the maximum winds very close to the eye. that's the biggest trouble with this is that the widespread damage -- typically if something happens in new jersey to the power lines, they'll call vermont and say, send your power company down here to get our lines back up and we'll come up to your state when you need the help. that's the problem. there are going to be 14 states with hundreds of thousands of power lines down. the mutual aid is going to be tough to come by in this area. they're going farther and farther away to get the mutual aid. the problem is it takes longer and longer for those bucket trucks to get there. i believe this storm will come onshore somewhere between cape may, wildwood, atlantic city. the eye is not re
democratic, but where obama is now playing defense. the president, back on the campaign trail today. going to wisconsin, colorado and nevada. mitt romney will be campaigning in virginia. george, you can expect both of them to be campaigning virtually nonstop between now and tuesday. >> no question about it. they're going to be focusing on the white battleground states and the pink in north carolina, over the next several days. we want to give you a sense of each side's strategy. what the obama campaign is trying to do is build a firewall in these three big, midwestern states. iowa, wisconsin, and ohio. he gets to 271 electoral votes. and if mitt romney wins all of the other battlegrounds right there, he'll come up a little bit short, which may explain, jon, one of the reasons the romney campaign is trying to put new efforts into minnesota and pennsylvania and michigan, where they have been behind so far. but if they're able to pick off any one of those three states, that's enough to put him over the top. and one of the things we're seeing, you talk about the travel in the last few days. th
